~ Es Lisei is a lustig's ~
This scene and verse in Bayrisch (Bavarian dialect) is very similar to the famous Schützenliesl (Trarget Lady); see story under Brauerei zum Münchner Kindl. The stein (without lid) is a PUG (printed under glaze) version marked with the Villeroy & Boch (probably Mettlach) logo, mold number 1526, decor number 588 and dated 1894.
Es Lisei is a lustig's
a wundernetts Kind;
Acht Krugel auf amol
dös geht wia der Wind.
Liese is a merry
wonderful girl;
Eight beer steins in hand
she goes like the wind.
